I think it would be:

System Preferences - Language and Text - put British English at the top of the list.

If it's not shown in the box, click the Edit List at the bottom to add it.

Thanx a million. Didn't think of clicking on "Edit List."
PS I Hope Texans don't get charged with treason for helping me change from US to UK English
